Said to be pilgrim's relic from Constantinople, purporting to be made by mixing small fibre fragments of the true cross with mud or wax. This was based on the story that St. Helena, mother of Constantine, excavated the cross from an area just outside Jerusalem. She divided the cross into nine parts and had them distributed. Legend claims that some of this material was used to produce these relics. Dating highly uncertain.
